My son just started doing somthing for the first time yesterday and it seem very stange to me. We were playing like we always do he was laying on the bed and i would make him laugh, it was late and i noticed him yawning, a few minutes later i noticed him moving his jaw then his mouth pulled back as if he was trying to show is bottom teeth (if he had any) and his jaw moved up and down while doing this his eyes also widened, i dont know how to exactly describe it but it almost looked like he was gasping for air, my wife said she saw him do this earlier in the day also... so i thought i would wait untill tody to see if it continues well just a few hours ago he did it again this time he was sitting on my wifes lap i noticed this time when he did it he also threw his head back a little... i am worried. but i am living in the Philippines right now and im worried if i take him to the docter they wont catch it or wont see him doing it and they wont understand what im talking about. can anyone tell me if this is normal or not?... oh and one more thing the reason im really thrown off is because after this (spasm?) he will go on laughing and smiling again.

One last thing, im not sure that this has anything to do with whats going on above, but i want all the information availible, when my son was born here at the Philippine hospital we had a norborn screening, and the test came back that his has (G6PD deficiency).
